Suffer Insomnia

Jz curious how may ppl is/are suffer insomnia?

I'm age 53 jz started insomnia last week, every night can't fall asleep, my eye close and wait for the sun to raise.

I have seen Chinese medicine, family clinic and polyclinic, but they gave me pill to release my body stress but I don't think I have due to retired in couple year ago. They don't give sleeping pill now.

Polyclinic referrals me to SGH sleep doctor specialize but SGH rejected and refused to make appointment, said not necessary but referral me to Khoo Tech Huat Hospital to see psychologist in the next 7-10 days.

Problem is, I can't sleep every night, not even fall asleep 1-2 hrs, can I wait such a long time?

How to CURE???

You can try getting some sunshine every morning once you wake up. It will help reset your internal body clock.

Also avoid bright lighting, as well as blue light emitting from screens of laptops, and mobile phones when you are close to your sleeping time.

Exercise will also help your brain release neurotransmitters such as endorphins and dopamine, They aid in alleviating stress, and can help you to feel more positive.

Once you see a psychiatrist, in most cases, you may be given antidepressants which are potent drugs and may complicate your insomnia to "depression".

suggest:
1) avoid coffee and tea, especially after noon.
2) take chamomile tea in the evening
3) get busy, go for a walk, and make yourself really tired
4) try the above for a week and if you still cannot sleep, you can take Melatonin. start with 0.5mg (sublingual, place below your tongue) 1 hour before sleep time and dim the room, no TV, phone, PC.... Order melatonin from iherb, more choices and cheaper too. In Sg, it's expensive and most at 3mg which is too strong.
5) take Magnesium (can order from iherb), this helps too.

Get well!

cant sleep at all whole night, very stressful now when see the bed, jz cant fall asleep.

first day, whole nigh cant sleep
second day, similar
third day, may be few hours asleep

Try lot of methods but sadly no solution.

sometime sleep few hrs at morning, or afternoon, night jz very stress

Think I getting menopause/andropause?

The worst thing is feeling alone when sit on the floor and wait for the morning sun.

This pain suffer not only myself but influence my family life, I really felt sorry to them

Anyone have any idea of NeurOptimal® neurofeedback?

This is to control and educate your brain to fall asleep? Any one try before? No cheap per season I heard.

Jz went to see Psychiatry at Khoo Teck Puat this morning, doctor prescribed:

1. Melatonin 3MG per tab
2. Mirtazapine Orodispersible - 15 MG per tab but take half tab

After Taken medicine at 11pm, I felt dizzy and head like spin spin, very sleepy and quickly went sleep at 11.40pm, ended up whole night suffered dizzy but can't sleep at all. Dragging until 6.30am then fallen asleep till 11am. Sleep again 3.30pm to 5pm, after that feeling ok.

Is this normal ?

Any one have same experience?
